As a venue that is (in)famous for raising the bar and thinking outside the box when it comes to club nights, De School has again supplied an alternative definition to the word ‘clubbing’. Transforming itself into a creative hub, the organization has spread its wings and announced a collaboration with the Sandberg Instituut—hosting a series of art interventions and events addressing modern club culture.

Kicking of Clubgenoten on 8 December is BLACK OUT—an event brought to you by 24 students from the Studio for Immediate Spaces (Sandberg Institute) together with contemporary artist Frédéric Post. The partaking students have been working hard for the past week to produce a party without electricity, held at Het Muzieklokaal (our favourite revamped classroom in the former school). Entrance is free and will be located at the front of the building, so arrive at 7pm to be welcomed into an experimental clubbing lair.

Following on from this night, you can expect to see a lot more from these students as they continue to “challenge the boundaries of clubbing”, intervening more frequently during De School events and showcasing their forward creations.
